In recent weeks, it has been brought to the Town’s attention that certain residents have been placing grass clippings and other non-recyclable materials in their recycling carts. While grass clippings are compostable, they are not acceptable materials for inclusion in the recycling cart.
Did you know that when non-recyclable materials end up in the recycling truck, the entire load of recycling is contaminated? The recycling depot refuses to accept any loads that contain non-recyclable materials and the truck is then diverted to the dump; none of the items included in the load will be recycled.
Residents are asked to ensure that only acceptable recyclable materials are placed in their recycling cart. More information on acceptable items for recycling and alternate disposal options can be found here.
